English Premier League soccer club Leicester FC will not face charges from UEFA after FC Copenhagen fans set off a number of flares during a recent Champions League match at the King Power Stadium, the BBC reports.
European soccer’s governing body will instead instigate disciplinary proceedings against the Danish club after its supporters set off flares and fireworks within the away end of the Leicester stadium.
Usually, clubs are considered to be responsible for the actions of all fans inside their stadium, unless they can demonstrate to UEFA that have not operated in a negligent manner. UEFA will address FC Copenhagen’s case on November 17.
